    Hi Sheri!

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation and stay at Port Orleans French Quarter Resort. You'll love the ambiance of the resort, quaint & beautiful with a relaxed feel. Be sure to try the beignets while you are there - they are heavenly!

    I frequently use the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan myself. Tipping really depends upon how many sit-down, table-service meals you've reserved to enjoy daily, how many are in your party dining, and what type of cuisine you plan to enjoy. On average for our family of four, with a sit-down breakfast and dinner and a casual, counter service lunch, I've found that we tend to charge/spend about an additional $40-$60 daily on tipping. When your bill is presented, you'll have options to choose from already calculated for you, that are the recommended tip amounts. You simply choose one to be charged back to your Resort account, or may opt to leave cash instead. If you're planning on three table service meals daily, you'll find that you'll likely be spending an additional $20-$30 daily on tips based on a family of four. Less if you're a party of two or three ... or a little more if you have 5 or more in your travel party.

    Walt Disney World's internal transportation system is fabulous & runs frequently to and from all destinations within the vast property. The only time you may find you require usage of a taxi would be if you're in a particular hurry to be somewhere on time for a reservation or if you're dining earlier than park opening at another resort or park location. Within the property, a taxi is usually $15-$20 plus tip.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time on your Walt Disney World vacation Sheri!
    I hope you'll visit again soon with more questions.
